    Default Lab Med in ICD-10 ??

    I don't find 'Laboratory Medicine' in the indexes of neither ICD-9-CM nor ICD-10-CM. Do you have a list of ICD-9-CM diagnosis names that you want to trace to ICD-10-CM?

    You can download ICD-10-CM in files so you can do your own research. To save some time, you might start with the 'cross-walk' files which are entitled GEMs (general equivalence mappings) to see if they help you. After that, you can unzip the index and tabular files so you can dive into ICD-10, yourself.

    2012 ICD-10-CM:
    2012 ICD-10-PCS:

    The above webpages have links to other ICD-10 related topics.
